    Just one gift missing? I bet they just didn’t give you one. Just let it go.

    Just thank them for attending since that is all you can do. It’s rude to bring anything up about stolen/misplaced gifts.

    Gifts/cards are less likely to be stolen if you know every guest in attendance and you are the only wedding/event at your venue during that time frame, and in most groups that is not an issue at all. Plus make sure that someone has scotch tape to secure cards to packages.

    At the same time, many people don’t bring gifts to the wedding since it’s not a requirement to do so and they do have up to a year to give you something, if they intend to at all, per proper etiquette.

    Did you register? Did someone buy something off the registry that you never received? Were there a lot of boxed gifts?

    Can another family member ask discreetly? I think you have a valid concern. Was anything else missing?
